An Excuse

Oh dear, but it has been a long time since I've been here (again!!!).  I do have an excuse - I really do!!  To all you friends who guessed my news - you guessed right!!!!  Yahoo!!!   Baby number nine is tucked in under my ribs and we could not be more excited!!  What an amazing blessing to know that there is a sweet new life being formed right now - a new little baby to snuggle and cuddle - a baby planned by God!!

The one thing is - it is very common for me to feel really pretty sick during the first few months of pregnancy so there is my excuse for not visiting blogland much in the last couple of weeks.  I haven't even picked up my camera lately :0(!!  Thankfully my sweet hubby and older children have jumped in and are picking up the slack while I sit on the couch or run off to the bathroom (sorry if that's TMI :0)!!!)  Hopefully this stage will pass soon and my energy will return and my tummy will not be so traitorous!!  In the meantime, my crochet hook is busy, busy, busy!!  I have decided to use this time to get a big jump on Christmas gifts so I don't feel too unproductive!

I hope to be better at visiting blogland while I go through the early parts of baby growing as well as remembering to pick up my camera :0)!!

But in spite of feeling ill most all the time we are so incredibly happy with this change our family is going through - God is good!!!

Hi Christine! You have come to mind often and I have offered up many prayers for your family. I didn't know I was praying for a new Wayson! Isn't God good?!

I have been enjoying my SVEC time geeking out with my gadgets, but I miss hanging out with you and Karen.

Feel free to call for help-anytime. In the meantime, I will keep you in my prayers.

Hello there far away friend~

Are you feeling better yet? Pregancy is sooo much nicer when we are feeling good isn't it~

I'm glad you were able to rest and be sick and didn't have to get up and run around.

Did we ever get a due date? Congratulations ---- will you be finding out if baby is a boy or a girl?

Congratulations!! After giving birth to 6 children I'd LOVE to be blessed with more but alas, my time is soon over. The night sweats and hot flashes have begun :-( Be blessed and relish the moment of snuggling those babies!!!
